Vernon National Shooting Preserve

History of Vernon National

This old family farm has been in the Acee family for over 20 years where they operated a dairy and crop business.

In memory of the old days of pheasant hunting locally, the owner, Ron Acee, his father Sam, and their faithful dog Gus made a trip out to the Dakotas, which was the inspiration for the pheasant preserve beginnings on this beautiful 500+ acre property.

The terrain is managed with varied covers from corn, sorghum, sunflowers, and natural grass to plantations of evergreens, hardwoods, and extensive brush and hedge rows all offering a natural, challenging hunt.

With a love for shooting and a great place to do it, Vernon National has now become a full facility for your sporting recreation. Back around 2003, a few Promatic traps replaced an old hand thrower for some family fun.

In time friends were invited to join in the shooting and before long an area of woods was cleared for the set up of a 5-stand field. Over the next few years, a private little set-up grew into a busy little business.

It was decided to take this to the next level and build a sporting clay course. In 2008 a new state-of-the-art fully automated sporting clays facility with 10 stations was opened. We have 14 stations offering a wide variety of targets, some of which you will not see anywhere else.

Please contact us to have the time of your life on this continually growing shooting preserve.
